Wrapping up my @scienceathon week by wrapping up in my favorite blanket and drinking hot chocolate out of my favorite mug from @earthandstate. It's been a great week of communicating some of who I am, what I do, and the great community I am a part of. I hope I have been able to help others learn more about me - an #actuallivingscientist, a part of #womeninstem, always looking for ways to connect Earth science to the non-science community, whether it be through #sciart or #EarthScienceWeek or documentary screenings on campus like #thehumanelementmovie. ************************************ #dayofscience #weekofscience #earthsciencewomensnetwork #ESWN #octopus #hotchocolate ************************************** If you enjoyed following my week, please consider donating to my crowdrise page for the @scienceathon, where donations benefit the amazing organization ESWN (Earth Science Women's Network). https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/science-a-thon-2018/lauraguertin
Yes, the @scienceathon is officially over - but I'm not finished yet! Today is a big day for me, as this is the second year the @psubrandywine Sustainovation Club (@sustainpsubw) students are leading an educational outreach activity at the @tylerarboretum Pumpkin Days Fall Festival. This year, the students decided to focus on teaching kids about conserving energy at home, showcase various renewable energy sources (such as wind power), emphasized the benefits of planting native plants and going outside, then helping kids create their own pinwheels. The last table at our station asked visitors to state how they will go home and make better efforts to conserve energy. This year's Sustainability Research Station was a great combination of education and hands-on fun! I'm so proud of the 19 students that came out today to make a difference in the community. #sustainovation #weare #wearepennstate #nittanylion #mascot #education #outreach #dayofscience #weekofscience #actuallivingscientist #womeninstem
Big event today! We unveiled winners of our 1st-ever @PSUBrandywine #EarthScienceWeek photo contest! See how the #EarthAsInspiration theme was used with @adobe products. Thanks Matt Bodek & @psulibs #VairoLibrary 4organizing w/me! @scienceathon #dayofscience #weekofscience @vairolibrarypsu #photocontest
Piling up the boxes and bins this morning outside of my office this morning for an early pick from the campus maintenance department. I'm so lucky to have such supportive services across the campus that come together as a team for our outreach events. Maintenance will be bring all of this stuff (minus the fire extinguisher!) and some folding tables over to one of our community partners, @tylerarboretum, so we can participate in their Pumpkin Days Fall Festival on Saturday! (and yes, I'm sporting last year's @scienceathon t-shirt!) #dayofscience #weekofscience #actuallivingscientist #womeninstem #logisticslogisticslogistics #whatfacultydo
Lunch at 3PM, because my marathon day of teaching/meetings doesn’t take a break during the @scienceathon! #dayofscience #weekofscience #whitepizza @pennstatebwcampusliving
